Why not take a look at the engineering excellence and pride that is manufactured into each and every Thwaites dumper.
80 years of success
Exclusively designed and manufactured at our Leamington Spa, Warwickshire factory. Thwaites are proud that for over 80 years, and from the same site, we continue to engineer solutions for the plant hire and construction markets on five continents and in over 70 countries.
Blending the very latest robot welders and laser cutters, with the cleanest and most efficient paint spraying and baking methodologies. A highly skilled team of time served craftsman, engineers, designers and machine builders, ensures Thwaites dumpers are consistently at the forefront of safety, dumper design, manufacturing and development.
Thwaites offer a range of quality, reliable site dumpers, from 1 tonne to 9 tonne capacity. All built to exacting standards with hirers and contractors in mind. At every stage of the manufacturing process each component has to pass the most stringent tests before the assembled dumper goes through its final pre-despatch inspection and is received by Thwaites distributor and customers.
With the highest safety standards, fewer repairs and breakdowns, owning and operating a Thwaites dumper will reduce cost and improve margins. Productivity improvements and efficiency gains will further improve customer satisfaction.
Built to Last: Improve physical utilisation and payback with Thwaites quality and reliability, in addition when it is time to ‘trade-in’, you benefit from market leading residuals.
Thwaites dumpers go to market via a distribution model, each Thwaites distributor reflects the values of the brand. In the UK we partner exclusively with 12 of the leading family owned plant sales businesses. Each of whom prior to being selected, as partners, will have completed a careful and considered process before they become an authorised Thwaites distributor.
Around the world Thwaites dumpers are available on five continents and in over 70 countries.
A Family Business
Basil Thwaites founded the company in 1937, the business initially designed and manufactured agricultural machinery. After WW2 Thwaites began production construction equipment including dumpers. This established an enduring relationship with the construction market which remains to this day.
Since the early 1960’s the Wills family have been involved in guiding and developing the company. In 1994, after a 50 year relationship, the family further increased its ownership and stake holding.
Today the Wills family remains actively involved in the business, ensuring that the Thwaites name is as renowned and recognised by today’s generation of dumper owners and operators, as it has throughout the company’s 84 year history.
The Thwaites name is synonymous with the best-quality dumpers on the market. Advanced design and investment in tooling provide today’s customers with the very best products at the cutting edge of technology. This means more than just the strength and reliability you know you can expect from Thwaites; it means an increased focus on customer satisfaction, safety and ergonomics across the range.
